Liberators over Europe, 1942 - 1945
An excellent splice of some real good Liberator candid shots. Quality is exceptional considering the years of the shoot. Also I appreciate the bravery of the men involved and thank them for my freedom in the years since my birth year 1945.
Thanks to those brave Liberators and many thousands of others, we enjoy our freedom here in Australia.
